Major in Biology from Instituto de Biociências da USP (2008) and PhD in Botany from Universidade de São Paulo (2015). I'm interested in the evolution of the neotropical flora, working with Taxonomy and Evolution of Angiosperms, in projects involving Phylogeny, Biogeography, Traditional and Molecular Systematics and Genomic Evolution. I also collaborate in other projects, in Evolution, Phylogeography and Molecular Biology (Genomics and Transcriptomics), in animals and plants. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)

|An up-to-date survey of tropical forest lianas|
The Bignoniaceae family includes 840 species and 81 genera and has been the focus of many phylogenetic studies based on molecular characters. Bignonieae, the largest tribe of Bignoniaceae, is mainly composed of neotropical lianas with leaflets modified into tendrils. The genus Bignonia L., which is placed in Bignonieae, currently includes 28 species placed in eight different genera: Cly...
Phylogenies, or evolutionary trees, had become major tools for taxonomy in the 21st century. The phylogenies have been widely used in many different areas. Taxonomists use the phylogeny to sustain taxonomic reviews and to reveal cryptic species. Conservation Biology incorporates phylogenetic indexes in analysis of prioritary areas for conservation. Biogeography works with historical and...
The Bignoniaceae are distributed throughout the tropics and include approximately 840 species, organized in 81 genera. The family was object of many recent phylogenetic studies that imposed taxonomic chances such as recircumscription of previously recognized tribes, genera rearrangement in the "Tabebuia alliance" clade and the reorganization of all genera of the tribe. This tribe is mai...
